    The 900 MHz band has been used for industrial microwave heating for many years, for such diverse applications as thawing or tempering of large blocks of frozen food, continuous baking and continuous vulcanisation of rubber. The UK, TACS (Total Access Communication System) cellular radio network is also assigned to this band and the two operations have happily co-existed without serious problems. R...

    The European Community Directive 89/336/EEC on electromagnetic compatibility was published in 1989 as part of the process of removal of technical barriers to trade within the member states. As one of the 'new approach' directives, 89/336/EEC contains only the essential requirements of limitation of radio interference and provision of adequate immunity to electromagnetic disturbances. The technical... View full abstract»

    The history of the first UK National Grid for electricity supply encompasses technical, economic, commercial, political, environmental and other aspects of history. This paper reviews the concept, system technology, construction and early operation. The period covered includes the engineering concept and preparatory phase (1916-1926), the construction phase (1927-1933), and the early development a... View full abstract»

    Modularisation of degree courses, together with credit accumulation and transfer, is proceeding in universities in the United Kingdom. The claimed benefits and disadvantages are explored in this article and the North American experience is used for comparison. The nature of other changes in the UK educational scene is noted and the possible patterns for modularisation discussed.<> View full abstract»

    In recognition of the need to enhance the competence of the UK workforce, new national vocational qualifications (NVQs), and occupational standards on which they are based, are being developed. The paper describes the role of the Engineering Occupations Standards Groups and its four Industry Standing Conferences in the engineering sector and proposes the need for the participation of engineering i...

    Volumetric three-dimensional displays are those in which images are generated within a display volume, rather than upon a stationary surface. Since the images are physically three-dimensional, most visual depth cues are automatically satisfied, without the need for observers to wear special glasses or headgear. Moreover, an all-round view of the images is usually possible. Many ideas for volumetri... View full abstract»
